RE: Touch Up Paint

There are auto detailing shops that do micro touch up , mixing the paint on the spot and airbrushing the damaged areas. It's often the same folks that do paintless dent repair, you may want to check your area for one.

RE: Looking for a new trailer

with the towing/weight restriction consider the K-Z line. Of the lightweights they seem to have better reviews, 2 yr warranty, and the Escape line is 7'6" wide making towing a little easier. Escape

RE: Looking for a new trailer

If you dont mind carrying a genny in the pickups bed, a whole world of possibilities opens. 25' boxes with rear living areas like this rear living there are tons of options. Decide on what you need/want and visit a show as the shutdowns start dissappearing.

RE: Cybertruck has a yoke

When everything in it is electronic, how will the chip shortage affect these being made a reality?

RE: F 250 vs Ram 2500

Even staying with gas, the 6.4 Ram and the new 7.3 Ford are capable of towing 6500-7000 kg. And the new trannies are apparently doing well. So a diesel isn't necessarily needed even with a larger trailer.

RE: Washington state bans new gas light vehicle sales as of 2030

Never underestimate a politicians ability to be stupid. No doubt, something like this will happen in many areas over time. Technology will advance, some areas will expand, some will shrink, but the markets will determine what wins and what loses, a politician never should.

RE: What do you use for an outdoor ground cover?

A simple and inexpensive option is to go to your local Home Depot or Lowes and look at the 6' runners. choose the style/thickness your willing to work with and have it cut to the size you want.

RE: Richmond and Petersburg, Va

If you wander west from Pocohontas, check out Charlies waterfront cafe in Farmville Va, or for a college sports bar with great sandwiches Macados. For a neat little civil war site check out Staunton view state park The old men and boys battle. neat story. https://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state-parks/staunton-river-battlefield Youve missed this months meeting but another park a couple hours west of Richmond, Staunton river state park is the only dark skies park in the area and holds meetups for the Chapel Hill astronomical society, with some great introductions to astronomy.

RE: RV parks around Chattanooga and Vicksburg

The areas your looking at include a lot of Corps lakes. Check them thorourghly, with a Golden age or other pass, the savings and locations should both be "golden".

RE: Sloping driveway parking

Whats the wheelbase? Old vs new?

RE: Sloping driveway parking

Your prior post seemed to cover this, and you only needed about 7" of rise. remember, it's wheelbase or jack locations that determine the run of your slope. the 12" your thinking of now is based, I believe, on your total unit length. If you want a simple method to test how close you can get simply, since you appeared to need 7 inches, try getting a set of portable vehicle ramps such as these ramp easy enough to take them back if 8" isnt enough.

RE: solar

If your unit is a Phillips Respironics these adaptors can be used with many to avoid the inverter being needed. If a different brand or model check the mfr website. As to power usage, most are 50-70 watts with the higher wattage being for those folks who use the humidifier option.

RE: Locking surge protector

Would you leave a couple $100 bills out on the pedestal? Whats the difference?

RE: Inverter to run outside fridge

The fridge wont be running all the time, so yes it's doable. But your power number seems low. Get one of these Kill a watt or something similar and actually measure what the amps/watts are on start up so you don't buy too small an inverter, or use too light of wire.

RE: Trying to level my motorhome

By your measurement 1 1/8th inch rise per 2 feet of run Just over 12' wheelbase which is slightly more than 6 times your levels length. so six times your 1 1/8 inch equals,,,,, about 7 inches.

RE: Nightmare

A "stop payment" on the check, and demand the remainder be refunded since you never took possession. Good luck on the second part.

RE: Wow, 6 months wait for a Chevy-Tahoe

If you are lucky ! Some people are predicting that the chip shortage will not be resolved until 2023 !! It's a cyclical issue, to be fixed in 2025.

RE: slightly different solar qx

300W = 300W. Now we will argue all day about one way you could get 310W and the other way is 290W, but in the end it doesn't matter, the differences are small. The 325W panel will mate nicely with a Victron 100/30 or 100/50 MPPT charge controller. . Go with the 100/50 if you think there is any chance you may want to add another panel in the future. I'm not apparently making my question clear. To take a different tack, To charge a 300 Amp hr, 12 volt battery bank Would 3, 100 watt ,solar panels such as renogy 100 wired in parellel, provide a substantial upgrade, or downgrade as compared to a single REC 325 The gain or loss due to voltage difference is my question. Or is this a case of 300 watts is 300 watts,,voltage be damned?,, Thanks, that is the type of info I was looking for. Effects of differing voltages was the other, The rest was already clear.

RE: slightly different solar qx

So, the simple version of my question is,,,,,,, does the higher voltage provide a gain? If not, should a single panel should suffice for 24 hrs on an 8 cuft absorbtion fridge and two cpap units drawing 70 watts max for 8 hrs per day? or should I add a second panel?
